Welcome to the 2019 Super Metroid Double Anti-Bingo (DAB) Tournament!


Sign up at []! Runners of all skill levels are

encouraged to compete! Signups close on May 10th, and the first week of

matches will begin on May 13th.


Prior to the tournament, we will be confirming your

participation and getting players to join the Discord server [].

 Discord will be the official medium used to communicate with players

and schedule races.  If you cannot use Discord but would still like to

participate in the tournament, please contact an organizer at the

contact information listed below.




The category for this tournament is Double Anti-Bingo.

The procedure for DAB is the following: before the race starts a bingo

card is generated from Both racers will

choose a set of goals (row, column, or diagonal) to force their

opponent to complete but will keep this choice hidden. Once both racers

have made a choice they can ready up and the race can start. When

racebot says "GO!" both racers will reveal their picks for each other.

Each racer must then choose a second set of goals to complete and this

second set may not conflict with the first set (but they may overlap).

The winner is the first player to complete all of their goals.




The tournament will be in double elimination format.

 All typical double elimination procedures will apply.  The loser's

bracket finalist will have to win against the winner's bracket finalist

twice in order to win the entire tournament.  Seeding will be completely randomized.




One week will be given for each round of matches.  All

matches must be scheduled by the end of each respective week.  If extra

time due to a scheduling conflict or other circumstance is needed,

please contact a tournament organizer ASAP. Once you and your opponent

agree on a time please use this form [link not available yet] to submit your match.


If a match isn't scheduled by the end of the defined

week (11:59 PM EDT on the respective Friday), that match will count as a

forfeit for one or both of the players.  If one player has issues with

their opponent not responding to schedule a match by the deadline (and

tournament admins are kept in the loop about communication issues), the

opponent will be forfeited and the other player will advance with a win

for the match.  If both players are considered no-shows (worst case),

both players will be forfeited in order of seed.




Players will use SpeedRunsLive [] to time and

record their races. The final time listed on SRL will be the official
